The old lady had a million wrinkles on her weathered face
Her body was thin and bend forward
But in her eyes was a twinkle
You could look at her and see that she wasn’t
An ordinary person but rather someone special
A sage as older people were known to call her
A font of wisdom and experience, she was
You could take your problems to her
With the full confidence that she will
Give you the best advice there was
Help in solving riddles of life
One help she would offer to one and all
Burn a little sage in your place to rid it
Of all the evil and pests that bother you
